Research shows that certain individuals may excel at Fortnite due to their ability to perceive in a higher FPS

My career has been dedicated to studying efforts to surpass the FPS event horizon in gaming. I often dismissed such attempts, claiming that all games looked the same. This stance led to James, our hardware editor, poking fun at me for being objectively incorrect. However, a recent study by The Guardian suggests that I may have been onto something after all. It appears that we all perceive life at different FPS rates. So, that Fortnite player dominating may not be cheating but simply experiencing the game at a different speed than you do.

This phenomenon is known as ‘temporal resolution’ – the speed at which your brain processes visual information from your eyes. If you have high temporal resolution, the world appears slightly slower to you compared to someone with low temporal resolution. This means you may be able to react quicker in fast-paced situations. The study involved participants being tested on their ability to perceive flickering lights, with results showing a wide range of response times. However, the study was limited to a small group of 18-35-year-olds, so further research is needed for more accurate results.

Understanding that people interpret visual signals at varying speeds is not surprising. We are all unique beings with our own physical attributes and abilities. Some individuals may naturally excel at fast-paced games due to their faster perception of events. Knowing your own temporal resolution score could potentially impact decisions such as investing in high refresh rate monitors for gaming. Additionally, there might come a day where professional esports players have to provide their temporal resolution certificate as part of their qualifications. In this scenario, anyone falling below a certain FPS threshold would not be eligible to compete at a professional level.

In conclusion, my career focus on breaking the FPS event horizon in gaming has led me to realize that people perceive life at different FPS rates. This phenomenon known as ‘temporal resolution’ can impact our ability to react quickly in fast-paced situations and could potentially influence decisions related to gaming equipment and qualifications for professional esports players. Further research is needed for more accurate results and understanding this concept fully can lead us towards making better decisions regarding gaming and technology advancements in this field
